“Always give without remembering. Always receive without forgetting”.

Hi, everyone.

Recently, my friend said to me "Lily, you're always helping people one way or another" and it made me realise how true this statement was.
I once came across a really nice quote that I would like to share:
“Always give without remembering. Always receive without forgetting”.

I guess I don't really have a real "reason" as to why I help people other than the fact that I simple do. It gives me a sense of satisfaction and is actually a really nice feeling to be able to help someone.

I have had many occasions in the past where I have needed help, and had received it one way or another so I am very grateful. Nobody can get through life completely on their own no matter how strong or independent they are. We all need a friend to lean on when times get tough; someone to guide us through or simply an ear to listen to when we need to talk.

They say that the most valuable gift that we can give to another is our "time"- I agree.
We can do so much every day in the 12-15 hours (approximately) that we are awake. Instead of wasting it, why not make the most out of it, and use it wisely? For me, I enjoy spending my time to help people because truthfully, we all need help at some point in our lives. Do you remember your first day at school where you did not know anyone and had to ask for directions so that you could get to class on time? Or the time that you lost a possession and needed help on how to get it back? Life is too short to be negative all of the time. Instead, let's learn to be happy for each other; support, empower and encourage each other; and "share the love".
